SASKATOON RESIDENT WINS $250,000 ON EXTRA!Laurie Cassidy is thrilled she decided to play EXTRA on her recent WESTERN 649 ticket. The Saskatoon resident won $250,000 on the August 2 EXTRA draw.
Cassidy won a WESTERN 649 free play on the Saturday, July 26 draw. She paid $1 to add EXTRA to the free ticket when she redeemed it at the Co-op Preston Crossing Gas Bar, located at 1755 Preston Avenue North in Saskatoon.
She discovered she had won big when she checked the winning numbers the morning after the draw. Cassidy exactly matched all seven digits of the winning EXTRA number – 2906290.
“I couldn’t believe it!” she said. “I woke my husband and told him right away – he couldn’t believe it either.”
The happy winner said she plans to use her top prize to buy a new vehicle and pay some bills.
“This makes life just a little bit easier,” she said.
